Light and fragrant, this is deftly balanced to slide a mild undertow of sweetness under delicately articulated grapefruit, apricot and rose petal flavors. Drink now through 2010.

This is off-dry, roughly 2% residual sugar, and the sweetness is quite evident. It's rather fleshy for a Gewürzt, with honeysuckle, melon and peach fruit. There is a nice spiciness to the aromas as well, and it carries into the midpalate, lending a welcome streak of licorice.

Soft, slightly sweet and crisply balanced to show off its rose petal-tinged grapefruit and lychee flavors. A fine wine for sipping on its own. Drink now.

This is an off-dry, fruity style, bringing luscious pear, orange, golden apple and citrus flavors to the front. There's a hint of orange marmalade, and it has good weight and concentration, along with lovely purity of flavor, right through the finish. You'll be reaching for that next glass before you know it.

Mostly Sauvignon Blanc, with 10% Sémillon, this lightly spritzy wine offers crisp citrus and melon fruit, with a tangy, lemony zip to the finish.

Mostly Sauvignon Blanc, with 10% Sémillon, this graceful wine opens with some sharp, grassy and grapefruity scents, then softens up a bit, with a textural middle that hints at sage, melon, smoke and herb. Huge improvement over the 2006.

Bright and refreshing, with a floral edge to the grapefruit and pear flavors. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

During the grape growing season, Eastern Washington boasts warm summer days followed by cool nights, ensuring that grapes ripen fully while retaining ample natural acidity. We let our Gewrztraminer attain a high level of ripeness before picking. The resultant wine has aromas of lychee and rose petal. The rich palate is medium-bodied, with lychee, true varietal flavors and a spiciness characteristic of Gewurztraminer.The winemakers suggest pairing the wine with Thai curries or dishes with a sweet peanut sauce.
